EUR 15,17
We are crossing a new frontier in the evolution of computing and entering the era of cognitive systems. The victory of IBM's Watson on the television quiz show Jeopardy! revealed how scientists and engineers at IBM and elsewhere are pushing the boundaries of science and technology to create machines that sense, learn, reason, and interact with people in new ways to provide insight and advice. In Smart Machines, John E. Kelly III, director of IBM Research, and Steve Hamm, a writer at IBM and a former business and technology journalist, introduce the fascinating world of "cognitive systems" to general audiences and provide a window into the future of computing. Cognitive systems promise to penetrate complexity and assist people and organizations in better decision making. They can help doctors evaluate and treat patients, augment the ways we see, anticipate major weather events, and contribute to smarter urban planning.Kelly and Hamm's comprehensive perspective describes this technology inside and out and explains how it will help us conquer the harnessing and understanding of "big data," one of the major computing challenges facing businesses and governments in the coming decades. Absorbing and impassioned, their book will inspire governments, academics, and the global tech industry to work together to power this exciting wave in innovation.
Das Denken von kognitiven Systemen: Die Beantwortung von Fragen mittels Deep Learning Algorithmen und neuronalen Netzwerken am Beispiel von IBM Watson

Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Ingenieurwissenschaften - Künstliche Intelligenz, Note: 1,0, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Grundlage der vorliegenden Arbeit ist die Auseinandersetzung von Walter Hehl mit der Thematik in seinem Buchkapitel "Wissen, Verstehen und Intelligenz mit Software", in dem er auf die verschiedenen Fähigkeiten zur Beantwortung von Fragen durch IT-Systeme eingeht und vor allem die Methodik von Watson anhand der Quizshow Jeopardy! genauer erläutert. Um einen geeigneten Rahmen dafür zu bilden, wird zunächst erläutert, wie kognitive Systeme definiert werden können und prägnant deren historische Entwicklung betrachtet. Im Hauptteil wird auf die Beantwortung von Fragestellungen durch IT-Systeme und dabei aufkommende Problemstellungen; sowie im Speziellen auf die Methoden des Watson-Systems am Jeopardy!- Beispiel eingegangen und mögliche Anwendungsbereiche von kognitiven Systemen aufgezeigt. Abschließend werden die wichtigsten Ergebnisse der Arbeit zusammengefasst, die Arbeit und Vorgehensweise kritisch reflektiert und ein Ausblick in die Zukunft gegeben. Aufgrund des Rahmens der vorliegenden Arbeit und der Thematisierung von IBM Watson in dem zugrundeliegenden Artikel; bezieht sich der Oberbegriff von kognitiven Systemen bzw. Cognitive Computing insbesondere auf die Watson-Technologie des Unternehmens IBM. Zur genauen Betrachtung der Historie von kognitiven Systemen eignet sich deren historische Einordnung in die drei möglichen Ären der Rechensysteme. In der ersten, tabellarisierenden Ära von ca. 1900 bis 1940 wurden mit mechanischen Maschinen die funktionalen Grundzüge von Computern ergründet. Lochkarten dienten u.A. der ersten Umsetzung des EDV-Prinzips. Die folgende programmierende Ära, welche von 1950 bis heute anhält, beschreibt den Wandel von den mechanischen zu den elektronischen Systemen und umfasst somit alle programmierbaren Systeme, welche noch heutzutage unseren Alltag bestimmen wie Laptops, Tablets und Smartphones. Die...

How Smart Machines Think (The MIT Press) (English Edition)
The MIT Press
Everything you've always wanted to know about self-driving cars, Netflix recommendations, IBM's Watson, and video game-playing computer programs.The future is here: Self-driving cars are on the streets, an algorithm gives you movie and TV recommendations, IBM's Watson triumphed on Jeopardy over puny human brains, computer programs can be trained to play Atari games. But how do all these things work? In this book, Sean Gerrish offers an engaging and accessible overview of the breakthroughs in artificial intelligence and machine learning that have made today's machines so smart.Gerrish outlines some of the key ideas that enable intelligent machines to perceive and interact with the world. He describes the software architecture that allows self-driving cars to stay on the road and to navigate crowded urban environments; the million-dollar Netflix competition for a better recommendation engine (which had an unexpected ending); and how programmers trained computers to perform certain behaviors by offering them treats, as if they were training a dog. He explains how artificial neural networks enable computers to perceive the world—and to play Atari video games better than humans. He explains Watson's famous victory on Jeopardy, and he looks at how computers play games, describing AlphaGo and Deep Blue, which beat reigning world champions at the strategy games of Go and chess. Computers have not yet mastered everything, however; Gerrish outlines the difficulties in creating intelligent agents that can successfully play video games like StarCraft that have evaded solution—at least for now. Gerrish weaves the stories behind these breakthroughs into the narrative, introducing readers to many of the researchers involved, and keeping technical details to a minimum. Science and technology buffs will find this book an essential guide to a future in which machines can outsmart people.

The Roles Artificial Intelligence (AI) can play in identifying & flagging Financial Crimes.: A look at the integration of IBM's AI named Watson into the ... prevention initiatives. (English Edition)

Criminals and law enforcement are engaged in an unending race for new ways to commit and thwart crime, respectively. Financial crime schemes in particular are constantly evolving and adapting in response to crime-fighters’ increasing use of advanced analytics to detect criminal activity. To keep pace and maintain pressure, the nation’s law enforcement, regulatory, and intelligence communities need timely access to reliable financial crime data, as well as powerful, user-friendly tools for data search and advanced analytics.Hence, the need to supplement personnel with robust Artificial Intelligence (AI) platforms that can receive and process data in real time. Consider IBM’s Watson; a modern, robust Artificial Intelligence (AI) Technology partner that can help Financial Institutions and FinCEN save on increasing human personnel costs, create increased efficiency and timeliness in data analysis and dissemination to interdict fraudulent transactions before settlement.
The Sentient Machine: The Coming Age of Artificial Intelligence (English Edition)
The future is now. Acclaimed technologist and inventor Amir Husain explains how we can live amidst the coming age of sentient machines and artificial intelligence—and not only survive, but thrive.Artificial “machine” intelligence is playing an ever-greater role in our society. We are already using cruise control in our cars, automatic checkout at the drugstore, and are unable to live without our smartphones. The discussion around AI is polarized; people think either machines will solve all problems for everyone, or they will lead us down a dark, dystopian path into total human irrelevance. Regardless of what you believe, the idea that we might bring forth intelligent creation can be intrinsically frightening. But what if our greatest role as humans so far is that of creators? Amir Husain, a brilliant inventor and computer scientist, argues that we are on the cusp of writing our next, and greatest, creation myth. It is the dawn of a new form of intellectual diversity, one that we need to embrace in order to advance the state of the art in many critical fields, including security, resource management, finance, and energy. “In The Sentient Machine, Husain prepares us for a brighter future; not with hyperbole about right and wrong, but with serious arguments about risk and potential” (Dr. Greg Hyslop, Chief Technology Officer, The Boeing Company). He addresses broad existential questions surrounding the coming of AI: Why are we valuable? What can we create in this world? How are we intelligent? What constitutes progress for us? And how might we fail to progress? Husain boils down complex computer science and AI concepts into clear, plainspoken language and draws from a wide variety of cultural and historical references to illustrate his points. Ultimately, Husain challenges many of our societal norms and upends assumptions we hold about “the good life.”
